There can be no surprise when the "shame and pride threw a double gloom over his countenance" (52). He is so taken aback by Catherine and what she says that he must be commanded to shake her hand. hen Earnshaw tells him to shake her hand in a way this is "permitted" (52), it becomes more than Heathcliff can bear. hile Catherine claims she did not mean to laugh at Heathcliff, the damage is done. She does not realize the extent of her damage and continues to do even more damage by telling Heathcliff he is "sulky" (52) and looks "odd" (52) and things would not be so bad for him if he would just brush his hair and wash his face. This scene only lasts a few moments but it is critical in that it drives much of the plot after this point. It drives Heathcliff to do what…

Consequence of apid Advances in Science and Technology

Identify A Potential Unintended Consequence Of The apid Advances Made In Science And Technology

Potential unintended consequences of rapid advances in science and technology

The purpose of this paper is to identify the unintended consequence of radiotherapy treatment on the cancer patient. adiotherapy is the technology that is regularly used to directly kill the cancerous cells through the use of the short-wave rays. The process is intended to help the patient with a treatment option other than leaving the patient suffers from the impacts of cancer. Unintended consequences are those impacts that arise from a technology that was initially meant to have a solution to a specific problem. The unintended consequences may be positive or negative but mostly they are negative consequences that are observed. For example, the purpose of the Avandia or rosiglitazone that was intended to help the diabetes II…

Environmental Hazards as a Consequence of Crude Oil/Natural Gas Exploration, Transportation, Refining and Storage

Ever since crude oil was first successfully drilled in the U.S. In Titusville, Pennsylvania, in 1859, the demand for oil has only been increasing over the years in countries all over the world. (Camden, 1883) Crude oil, from which various petroleum products are obtained, is a naturally occurring hydrocarbon component found trapped in rocks below the earth. The word "petroleum" means "rock oil" or "oil from the earth." Natural gas is another form of hydrocarbon that is also found in nature. oth crude oil and natural gas have excellent combustibility and are good sources of energy. Crude oil is not used in the extracted form; but it is refined to obtained products such as gasoline, liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), naphtha, kerosene, gas-oil and fuel oil. Secondary products during the purification of crude oil are obtained are…

Staffing Shortages in Nursing Are a Consequence
Words: 4317 Length: 14 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 6266637
Read Full Paper  ❯

Staffing shortages in nursing are a consequence of poor nurse retention and nurse satisfaction. Being a nurse requires a lot of dedication, patience, and ability to keep updated in a constantly evolving world. When hospitals and other medical facilities have staffing shortages or shortages in qualified nurses, the healthcare delivery of that particular place dwindles. Nurses are the backbone of any healthcare facility.

Especially in recent times, nurses provide prescriptions, treatment protocols, and diagnosis when doctors are away or busy. This literature review is meant to explain such a phenomena and how it relates directly to nurse satisfaction and nursing retention. From here, the connection crosses over to nursing care and healthcare delivery as standards of practice. Things like arrhythmias will be viewed to understand how nursing shortages attribute to lower quality of care. Utilizing Polk's theory of esilience, this review will allow a look into performance improvement concerns and…

Consequences of Not Properly Closing Projects

There are many consequences of not properly closing out a project that can affect the success of the project or the program for many years to come. One of the most important aspects of closing is documenting lessons learned; especially in organizations that run multiple projects. For example, in many IT projects there are lessons learned throughout the project that can affect future related projects or other projects that have similar objectives. It can also affect the serviceability of the product of an IT project. For example, if an IT project produces software, then future revisions or software updates can be deeply impaired by the failure to document critical aspects of the lessons learned during the project's closure. A software update team may not be able to trace the original steps that were taken in the project so that the team can fix bugs…

The authors explain that "Large-scale habitat loss and fragmentation…" that results from urban sprawl is a major cause of the lack of biodiversity within the insect species (Acharya, 1999, 27). Even the building of a new road, or street lights, in places where previously there were no roads or lights, what the authors call "undisturbed areas," has an impact on insect biodiversity, Acharya explains. Meanwhile, moths, which are known to be drawn to light, have trigger mechanisms that detect the echolocation signals of bats; and on the other hand bats feed "…heavily" on moths, Acharya continues; in fact many bat species use moths as their "main food item" (Acharya, 27).

The point of that information (and of this study) in this peer-reviewed piece is that if "…eared moths" exhibit behaviors that allow them to avoid bat attacks, they would not be caught as often by bats and hence this would…

Day Care

positive and negative consequences of day care on a child's psychological development.

NEGATIVE OUTCOMES

When the child is enrolled in day care for twenty or more hours a week, parents experience difficulty in handling the children [Belsky et al., p.556-678]. Usually the behavioral problems are related to aggression, or defiance.

If a child is spending the first 3 crucial years at the day care, the parent-child bond is likely to be effected. This can lead to feelings of insecurity, low self-esteem, low self-confidence and inability to form close relationships.

POSITIVE OUTCOMES

The children in day care have the higher levels of verbal and mathematical abilities [Broberg et al., p.62-69]. Thus, children spending a fair amount of time in quality day care before forty months of age have higher cognitive test scores. Their cognitive abilities are reflected by the language development and competence.

The day care quality is also associated with…

Computerized Physician Order Entry

Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE) systems are essential towards the improvement of the ordering processes within the health centers or hospitals. These systems are also valuable in relation to improvement of patient safety and enhancement of the quality of care or service delivery (Cohen A, et al., 2005). This is an indication that the systems are vital in the achievement of quality services with reference to quality care of patients within the health centers. Despite these benefits, there are unintended consequences in association with the implementation of the CPOE systems within the context of the hospitals or health centers (Kaushal et al., 2003). The main objective of this research analysis paper is to evaluate three critical forms of unintended consequences in relation to the implementation of CPOE systems in hospitals.

Psychological Parameters of Impulse Buying

Personality -- Impulse Buying

Defining the Psychological Parameters of Impulse Buying

Impulse buying (IB) represents unplanned, impulsive purchases that make little economic sense. The occasional, inexpensive impulsive purchase may do little harm and may even be healthy, but a pattern of chronic IB can lead to financial ruin. For this reason, understanding the psychological precursors for IB will be important for the creation of effective interventions. Towards this goal, the psychological states that predict IB behaviors were examined. In addition to the cognitive and affective domains included in the Impulse Buying Tendency Scale (IBTS), this study includes for the first time an analysis of the relationship between IB and the two most relevant time perspective domains of future-oriented and present-hedonistic-oriented from the Zimbardo Time Perspective Instrument (ZTPI). In addition, six questions were incorporated into the questionnaire to assess a consumer's perspective on IB consequences that…
